I've been coming to this site for a few weeks now, but this is my first crack at reviewing a beer... ever. Honestly, I've only rather recently been introduced to the world of craft beers. Kind of embarrassing, but I've spent most of my beer drinking life (I'm 32) drinking mass produced schwag. To me, beer served one purpose and one purpose only - to get drunk... and to do so cheaply. About a year and a half ago I started to get into wine, which is when I actually began paying attention to what I was drinking. So naturally I started to become more discriminating in my selection of beer. As a recent transplant to central Texas, I discovered several nice local craft brews like Real Ale, Ranger Creek, Freetail, St. Arnold, 512, Live Oak, etc. From there I've discovered other great craft beers like Stone, Sierra Nevada, Boulevard, and New Belgium, and I can't wait to try the thousands of other craft brews out there.

poured this into a pilsner glass (Blue Moon) just for grins, and because I plan on drinking some real crap later as a science experiment... nice bright orange and caramel-y color with a medium thick creamy head. smell is slightly hoppy with an amateurish kind of aroma to it also... taste is caramel malts with hops and slight abrasive bitterness at the end. some fruits in there on the middle of the tongue.
overall, a decent brew. not terribly bad in any way and I nice 7.2% abv.... now, on to the CRAP!!!! tally ho!
